Flooding Information

Preparation & Insurance

The City of Aspen participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and encourages all owners with land in the 100 year floodplain to visit floodsmart.gov, the official site of the NFIP, or contact a local insurance agent to receive more information on flood insurance.

Determining Property Status

If you are unsure if your property resides in the 100 year floodplain, the digital images of the Flood Insurance Rate Maps or FIRMs linked below should provide some indication or you can call the Engineering Department for assistance at 970-920-5080. Interactive digitized floodplain maps or DFIRMs will be available in 2012.

Water Flow Season

Please contact our emergency flood preparedness hotline at 970-429-1800 for information on preparing for the upcoming runoff and high-water season.

You can monitor flows in real-time by checking local USGS gages at Roaring Fork at Stillwater Bridge and Hunter Creek at Rio Grande pedestrian bridge.
